Last week, Emily Ratajkowski surprised us all with the news that she tied the knot in a courthouse wedding ceremony. And now, the model is shocking us yet again with her surprisingly affordable bridal outfit. For the out-of-left-field occasion, Ratajkowski donned an impossibly chic monochromatic pantsuit in an orange hue. Not what you'd expect a bride to wear, but the radiant Ratajkowski makes it work. If you fancy yourself a daring bride-to-be, just like this trendsetting model, here's where to snag the suit for your own big day.
(We promise you can pull it off!)
Ratajkowski definitely went the unconventional route when it came to her casual nuptials. On February 23, Ratajkowski and her love, Sebastian Bear-McClard, made things official at a New York City courthouse, where they tied the knot with friends Josh Ostrovsky (a.k.a. the Fat Jewish) and director Josh Safdie in tow. With no engagement ring selfie or previous announcement, Ratajkowski simply revealed that she had gotten hitched via her Instagram story on Friday. The wedding comes only weeks after the model had split with her previous longtime love Jeff Magid, according to TMZ.
But the model's whirlwind wedding wasn't the only thing that was unconventional. Her outfit for the big day was appropriately offbeat, too.
Taking inspiration from the '70s and Bianca Jagger's iconic white wedding suit, Ratajkowski rocked a belted jacket and trousers in a daring orange-yellow hue. She topped the look off with a large black hat with netting (just in case she didn't already look cool enough). And while the nontraditional bridal outfit looks like a million bucks, in actuality, it goes for less than $200. The outfit is from one of your favorite fashion retailers—Zara!—and is somehow still in stock.

The Zara website lists the long belted jacket for a cool $129, and the flared trousers in the matching mustard hue go for $70. At those prices, you can have a courthouse-perfect bridal outfit for almost a song. Who knew this supermodel was both style and budget savvy?
Ratajkowski recently opened up to W on why exactly she chose to rock that inexpensive and sure-to-be memorable bridal ensemble. "I knew that I really wanted to wear a suit," she explained. "I was thinking about a red suit, and I actually love mustard yellow, it’s one of my favorite colors. For my swim line I made a really good mustard yellow, and it is just a color that I love to wear. It felt a little bit personal to me, and also I just loved the cut of the suit."
And then once she settled on the untraditional silhouette, there was no hours spent browsing Pinterest and bridal boutique aisles for Ratajkowski, the ultimate bridechilla. "I was in a Zara uptown and picked it out and thought, 'This will do,' " she said.
Could she be any cooler?
